Spring Break 2013 – Universal Studios Florida

Posted: June 19, 2013 in Being Silly with Mom and Dad, Holidays, Vacation

April 7 – April 12, 2013: For spring break this year we decided it would be fun to go somewhere where we could ride roller coasters and not get rained on – since it always is raining where we live. So after a ton of research, we decided on Universal Studios Florida. It was quite a long flight to get there and we took the red eye so we would be in Florida early in the day so we could hit the park. So we got there running on fumes but we got our second wind as soon as we hit the parks. We had a total blast! The weather was perfect and we got to wear shorts :). Z was nervous going on the big roller coasters at first but the mean mom in me forced him to go on them. (OK before you judge me, I knew he would love them and he only needed a push to do them. Turns out I was right yet again….he couldn’t stop riding them!) His most favorite one was the one with the Hollywood Rip Ride Rocket. It was just that….a rocket. You start the ride off picking out what music you want blaring in your ears during the ride and then it shoots off at a 90 degree angle straight up. Then it loops, twists, turns, all around the park. Total rush! We rode this more times than I can count while we were there. Of course we did a ton of other stuff while we were there; tons of rides, shows, dining, roller coasters, and we even saw the Blue Man Group live (3rd row from the front). And even though Z was told several times while we were there that he looks just like Ron Weasley from Harry Potter, it was a wonderful trip as a family!
